I'm deeply tired. And often stressed and exhausted. But I am happy! I recognise this is the time of my life to go big.
I have no idea how I got anything done before the office. I am a super productivity machine now. And a better mum, because I come home when my work is done, and I am present, not darting off to do a few more emails.
Pfft! Flaws and fallibility and failures are human, and they are important.
The best way is always to be honest. A lovely man I was seeing sat me down and explained why he couldn't make it any more serious or take it further, and I respected that, even if at the time it cut deep. The worst way was probably the guy who ghosted me, then a week later I saw him with a girl he'd flown in from Sweden for a romantic visit. Cute!
The bossy lecturer?
I've just finished a book, due out early 2019, and I'm itching to do some fiction – it's been too long.
